The Narendra Modi government has identified 'gaps that raise concern' while scrutinising details of former Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s security protocol as devised by the Special Protection Group (SPG). The government officials have established that since 2015, there have been 1,892 occasions, until May 2019, when Rahul Gandhi did not travel in a bullet-resistant (BR) vehicle in Delhi. While travelling out of Delhi, on 247 occasions during this period, (June 2019 included), Gandhi chose to avoid a BR vehicle. Between 2005 and 2014, Gandhi travelled in a non-BR vehicle on 18 occasions in various parts of the country.
